I appreciate all the feedback. Don't know why I haven't really delved deep in this period. Always find myself drifting between '69 and '77 and '85 to '91 (this being when I saw most of my shows).

Not early '80's, '85 to be exact, but this is roundly recognized as one of the best-ever performances of Shakedown Street. The east coast breakout of Cryptical Envelopement is a big hit with the crowd, too. There are about 4 or 5 recordings of it here, but this one got the highest average rating of 5 stars, for whatever that's worth:

If you like blues, '85 is chock-full of shows which mine that catalog quite heavily---lots of performances of Down In The Bottom>Ain't Superstitious are available, along with Spoonful, Smokestack Lightning, Baby What You Want Me To Do---4/8/85 at The Spectrum looks pretty intriguing from where I sit, with a Midnight Hour>Walkin' The Dog>Big Boss Man opener, but I can't listen to it here at work.

I apologize. The first link I posted was only the first set. I replaced it with one with the full show, but here it is again:

Nice Tigerbolt.

To all, may I direct your attention to 12-13-80 scarlet>fire. Fire has some goosebump moments with classic Jerry guitar coming through clear and clean. Like a lightning bolt through your skull...
